So I know that the sub-title of this blog is “thoughts on life, travel, food, and faith.” I have blogged about all those things except tor one: faith. Now, I will admit that I struggle to write about my faith. Not because I don’t want to share it, but because I don’t know how to share. I often think I don’t have the words to share my faith. But I need to trust that he Lord will give me he words to write. I need to trust that the Lord will give me the words to touch hearts. Trust. I need to trust Him.
Trust has been a big part of my journey here. This trip has given me incredible opportunities to trust in the Lord. From the little things, like getting here safely, to big things, like trusting that He has a plan for my life, He is calling me to trust that He will take care of me. I can not do everything myself. I can not plan for every possible circumstance or prepare for every path that my life will take. I have to trust that he will be there every step of the way to guide me.
I can do all things in him who strenghens me. (Philippians 4:13)
Straight from the Bible, the Lord tells us we can do anything if we trust in Him and work through Him. I think this verse can easily be interpreted to mean that we can anything we set our mind to, but look at the end of the verse at the most important part:
I can do all things in him who strenthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
We need Him. We need to place our trust in Him. And he will give us the strengh to do whatever he calls us to do.
Moving to a new country has not been easy. There are the glamorous parts, like traveling to London on the weekends and getting to see another part of the world, the work parts, like going to class and writing papers, and there are the hard parts, like being away from my family, friends, and community and trying to find where I fit in at a place where I don’t know anyone. But the Lord has been right here with me the whole time and this has give me the opportunity to reach out to Him and to tell him:
I trust You.
